Military strategy and tactics : computer modeling of land war problems : [proceedings] by Reiner K Huber( Book )

12 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings forth a set of selected papers from the Conference on Modeling Land Sattle Systems for Military Planning. Sponsored by the Special Programme Panel on Systems Science of the NATO Science Committee, the conference took place in Ottobrunn, Germany, at the War Gaming Centre of Industrieanlagen-Betriebsgesellschaft. The idea to organize a conference on land battle systemmodelswas first suggested to me in 1g72 by Andreas Mortensen, then a member of the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment and presently at the SHAPE Technical Centre, when we discussed the apparent inconsistencies of various evaluations of force capability within NATO. Frequently, decision­ makers are confronted by contradictory results of different studies addressing essentially the same problern leaving them with the impression that the tools of systems analysis and operations research may not be very objective guides. However, experienced systems researchers know that a detailed comparison of models, their assumptions and inputs, would generally show that results are not really contradictory. But not only seem the decision processes in large national and international organizations tobe suchthat a comparison can hardly ever be accomplished, also the docu­ mentation available is rarely sufficient to really camprehend the differences in results. For these reasons, we felt that an effort to review the state of the art of model ing in support of force capabil ity assessments was overdue
Quantitative assessment in arms control : mathematical modeling and simulation in the analysis of arms control problems by Rudolf Avenhaus( Book )

10 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book originates in a series of contributions to the 1983 Systems Science Seminar at the Computer Science Department of the German Armed Forces University Munich. Under the topic "Quantita­ tive Approaches to Arms Control" that seminar attempted to review the present state-of-the-art of systems analysis and numerate meth­ ods in arms control. To this end, the editors invited a number of experts from Europe, the United St~tes and Canada to share and dis­ cuss their views and assessments with the faculty and upper class computer science students of the university as well as numerous guests from the defence community and the interested public. In three parts, this book presents a selection of partly re­ vised and somewhat extended versions of the seminar presentations followed, in most cases, by brief summaries of the transcripts of the respective discussions. In addition to an introduction by the editors, part I contains six papers on the present state and prob­ lems of arms control with emphasis on START (Strategic Arms Re­ duction Talks), INF (Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces negotia­ tions), and MBFR (Mutually Balanced Force Reduction talks). The seven contributions to part II are devoted to mathematical models of arms competition and quantitative approaches to force balance assessment of both, the static and dynamic variety. Part III pre­ sents five papers which address technical and operational aspects and legal implications of arms control negotiations and verifica­ tion
Systems analysis and modeling in defense : development, trends, and issues by R Huber( Book )

11 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and French and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the proceedings of an interna­ tional symposium devoted to Modeling and Analysis of Defense Processes in the context of land/air warfare. It was sponsored by Panel VII (on Defense Applications of Operational Research) of NATO's Defense Research Group (DRG) and took place 27-29 July 1982 at NATO headquarters in Brussels. Except perhaps for the Theater-Level Gaming and Analysis Workshop, sponsored by the Office of united 1 states Naval Research in 1977 , this symposium was the first international scientific meeting on Operations Research/Systems Analysis in the area of land/air war­ fare since the conference on Modeling Land Battle Systems 2 for Military Planning sponsored by NATO's Special Pro­ gramme Panel on Systems Science in 1974. That conference dealt primarily with modeling small unit (company, bat­ talion) engagements and, to a lesser extent, large unit (corps, theater) campaigns with principal emphasis on attrition processes and movement in combat. It was considered as rather successful in that it revealed the state-of-the art around 1972 and identified problem areas and promising approaches for future developments. lWith regard to foreign attendance, this wo- shop was largely limited to participants from the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic of Germany (see L.J. Low: Theater-Level Gaming and Analysis Workshop for Force Planning, Vol II-Summary, Discus­ sion of Issues and Requirements for Research, SRI­ Report, May, 1981)
Modeling and analysis of conventional defense in Europe : assessment of improvement options by Reiner K Huber( Book )

8 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a collection of contributions to a workshop on "Long-teY'fr/ Development of NATO's Conventional Forrward Defense" to which the GERMAN STRATEGY FORUM (DSF*» had invited some 50 systems analysts and defense experts of the United States, the United Kingdom, the Federal Republic of Germany and the SHAPE Technical Centre. Held in Bonn from 2 to 4 December 1984, this workshop was to provide a forum for the dis­ cussion, at a non-political expert level and in the light of available analysis results, of proposals for the improvement of NATO's conventional defense capabilities. In addition, it aimed at arriving at some recommenda­ tions as to which of these proposals deserve to be studied further and what methodological deficiencies must be alleviated and information gaps closed for an adequate assessment. The idea to organize this workshop has been discussed ever since 1980 with several defense systems analysts in the US and the UK who shared the opinion that, with a view to the immense global build-up of the Soviet threat on one hand and the stringency of defense resources in most NATO countries on the other, there is no reason that could permit us to dismiss any proposal promising improvement without careful study

Variable-resolution combat modeling : motivations, issues, and principles by Paul K Davis( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ability to do a cross walk among levels of resolution is important to a wide range of military and defense-planning activities such as systems analysis and policy analysis, war gaming, operational planning, and the development of a coherent military systems science. There are strong logical linkages among these activities, linkages that have been inadequately appreciated in the past. For example, systems analysts serving policymakers must suppress most details and deal with aggregated descriptions, but to understand which details to suppress they need to appreciate real-world military operations and some relatively complex phenomena. Commanders working amidst massive uncertainty to choose among alternative concepts of operation must also take a relatively aggregated view of events, but must thoroughly understand detailed operations, be able to conduct spot checks, and in some instances specify specific low-level missions that bear directly on the success of higher-level operations. And, as a final example, those concerned with high-resolution studies involving weapon-on-weapon interactions need sometimes to see their work in higher-level contexts so as to judge the relative significance of various capabilities and vulnerabilities. Ultimately, workers, whether they be military scientists or commanders, need to appreciate both forests and trees. This requires being able to change perspectives as appropriate and, in particular, being able to view problems at different levels of resolution
New issues and tools for future military analysis : a workshop summary by R. J Hillestad( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Note reports on a workshop held at RAND in May 1991 to discuss the new concerns analysts must face following the changes that have taken place in Central and Eastern Europe and Southwest Asia since 1989. The workshop produced a number of specific recommendations to the military analysis community and its sponsors: (1) continue to discuss issues of military analysis in open forums; (2) develop a quick reaction analysis approach with supporting tools; (3) reinstitute basic principles of systems analysis (attention to uncertainty, multiple scenario analysis, parametric analysis, comparative analysis, etc.), which may have atrophied because of the relatively stable planning scenario of the Cold War era; (4) promote basic research on complex phenomena, such as qualitative factors (training, morale, leadership), behavior of C3I systems, and new types of conflict; (5) promote multiorganization analysis of complex issues as well as multiple analyses of the same issues; and (6) promote education of analysts in the synthesis and solution of defense problems and education of decisionmakers in the use and limitations of analysis

Modelling and Analysis in Arms Control by Rudolf Avenhaus( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the results of an international workshop on Modelling and Analysis of Arms Control Problems held in Spitzingsee near Munich in October 1985 under the joint sponsorship of NATO's Scientific Affairs Division and the Volkswagen Foundation. The idea for this workshop evolved in 1983, as a consequence of discussions in the annual Systems Science Seminar at the Computer Science Department of the Federal Armed Forces University ~1unich on the topic of Quantitative Assessment in Arms Control 1) • There was wide agreement among the contribu­ tors to that seminar and its participants that those efforts to assess the potential contributions of systems and decision sciences, as well as systems analysis and"mathematical modelling, to arms control issues should be ex­ panded and a forum should be provided for this activity. It was further agreed that such a forum should include political scientists and policy analysts working in the area of arms control
